Stafford Knights and Ladies contribute $5,000 to St. William of York

On July 28, 2013, the Father Widmer Council of the Knights of Columbus and the Margaret Ladies each presented checks for $2,500 to Father Robert J. DeMartino, pastor of St. William of York Church in Stafford.

The combined $5,000 will purchase new folding tables for the parish and St. William of York School. The tables will replace worn-out tables used by the many parish organizations and the school throughout the year.

The Knights and their Ladies each raised $2,500 through Sunday morning pancake breakfasts and muffin, pastry and donut sales. The checks were presented to Fr. DeMartino following the council's installation of officers ceremony in the St. William of York Church sanctuary.

Father DeMartino expressed his gratitude to Father Widmer Council and the Margaret Ladies for their continuous support to himself and the parish.
